Camping First Aid Be Prepared
If you are going camping then you cannot ignore the need of having a First Aid box with you because it is like Naruto is going to wage a war against Madara without having Sakura and Lady Tsunade. You need to cover up all of your ends before leaving your home to go camping, it is just not like a normal picnic of yours where you can go and have fun without any kind of dangers around you. Camping is fun, playful, enjoyable and amazing activity but it can be risky as well, the risk part is to be taken care of properly because if you ignore this you might end up dying and we don’t want that to happen do we. It is not easy to pick up a first aid box which is suitable to carry with you for camping purpose.
There are some things you need to consider before you get the first aid box like the right size of the box and the right items available in it. The selection of items included in the first aid box is selected on the basis of location, climate and area you are camping in. For example, if you are planning on camping in a place which is far away from towns or cities then you use more bandages, disinfectants and some injections as well. If that area is known for snakes, (not u.k) then have some antidotes with you but you would think twice before going to such a place. The injuries during camping may or may not be fatal; even if the injuries are not fatal you still do not want those injuries to destroy your fun and enjoyment while on your camping adventure. So you should learn about selecting the right size of kit, items present in your first aid kit and above all which area you have selected for camping and what additionally you must have in your First Aid kit. Especially when you are a parent and have kids with you on camping site then you have added responsibility to take care of them as well.
The selection of the box of First Aid kits depends on many factors like whether you are going alone or in a group, whether you will use your car to travel to your camping destination or you will be unable to keep the car with you in the camping area. For example, if you are going alone, with no companion, then you should consider the First Aid kit especially made for you. In this case, you do not need any extra stuff, you know about yourself and what kind of medicine you need to take regularly or there is something out there which can be an irritant for you and you need some kind of anti-allergy medicine with you. Camping surely is fun but you do need to put time and effort to ensure that your fun and safety are covered. When it comes to kids, you know very well that they are naughty and it is easier for them to get hurt. So, think about the kids as well if you are taking them with you, make sure you have a bigger first aid box. If they are with you, you’re sure to need to add some extra things for them.
Once you have selected a First Aid kit then you have to select the items you need to keep in that box. Start with very basic ones such as Aspirin and IBUPROFEN because they can be used for all kind of small level injury and normal headaches or pains. There are very high chances of getting wounded and burns, if theses wounds or burns are left untreated then they may become infected and eventually increasing the extent of damage to your body as well. Have moleskin, antiseptic wipes, 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide, antibiotic creams and bandages as well. When you are out there at the camping site, you will not be getting food of high quality so it is safe to assume that you will get some gastric problems as well, make sure to keep gastrointestinal medicines in your First Aid box too. If your skin is prone to allergic reactions then you cannot ignore this, make sure to keep Antihistamines in the First Aid kit. As a parent, you should know what kind of medicines your kid needs if he or she is taking any medication regularly keep that medication in your First Aid Kit as well.
The forecast of the camping site should be in your mind before selecting the items for First Aid Kit. You need to have sunscreens and other different kinds of creams and sprays which as Anti-Itch creams or sprays. These creams or sprays can help you relief the pain or itches you might have during camping period. There may be bugs or poisonous plants present in the vicinity of the camping site which upon contact would leave you in pain, so you need these creams or sprays to avoid that pain.
That’s enough about the medicines and type of medicines you should have in your First Aid Kit now it is time for the tools you must have in your First Aid Kit. The small tools like tweezers, scissors, magnifying glass, safety pins and duct tapes are the most important tools to have in the First Aid kit.
After all of that, it comes to organizing the stuff you have selected in the First Aid Box, which you should organize according to the specific item’s nature. If some items are specifically of medical use then put them in one place and make them separate from other items present in the First Aid Kit, do the same with other items which are distinct in their nature and usage.
Having a First Aid Kit during camping is as important as having a tent at your camping site. You are vulnerable to many things when you are at the camping site so you need to be prepared in order to decrease your vulnerability and that can be achieved by selecting the essential items to keep in your First Aid Kit.
